DNSPerf, ResPerf, and DHCPerf are free tools developed by Nominum that make it simple to gather accurate latency and throughput metrics for Domain Name Service (DNS) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). These tools are easy-to-use and simulate typical Internet so network operators can benchmark their naming and addressing infrastructure and plan for upgrades. The latest version of the DNS test tools (DNSPerf and ResPerf) can be used with new test files that include IPv6 queries. DNSPerf "self-paces" the DNS query load to simulate network conditions. New features in DNSPerf improve the precision of latency measurements and allow for per packet per-query latency reporting is possible. DNSPerf is now multithreaded, multiple DNSPerf clients can be supported in multicore systems (each client requires two cores). The output of DNSPerf has also been improved so it is more concise and useful. Latency data can be used to make detailed graphs so it is simple for network operators to take advantage of the data.
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
